Even though lockdown has been difficult for a lot of people, it has given others time and space to explore things they always wanted to. More people than ever have taken to the internet to showcase their talent because there is no knowing what strikes a chord with people and becomes the next viral thing.
Currently what’s viral is a video of a couple who are over 70 years young. We call them young because of their infectious energy and apparent feeling of warmth and love towards each other. 76-year-old Ram Girdhar and 72-year-old Prerna have become a sensation on social media, for their killer dance moves and envy-inspiring chemistry.
In the video that has over 2 million views, the elderly couple is dashingly dressed for a dance performance – almost color coordinated. If you were ever to have a grandpa crush it would be on Mr Ram Girdhar because he pretends to style his hair better than Ranbir Kapoor.
Once the song – ‘Ghaghra’ originally starring Ranbir Kapor and Madhuri Dixit in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani – starts, and you will find yourself still not over Mr Girdhar’s smile when Prerna comes to the ‘stage’ and sets it on fire.
The video was shared on Facebook by Varisht Nagrik Kesari Club, but has since made its way to other platforms as well.
The two dance in perfect coordination, smile not leaving either one of their faces. It is confusing who to watch at a time because both are so adorable, so you might just find yourself watching the video on repeat.
People online are in love with the couple and have showered them with praises. One user commented, ‘The last thumka was killer to be honest,’ while another wrote, ‘So sweet really you both are inspiration for younger generations and couples that there is a hope full of happiness in life may God bless you good health’.
Another said, ‘They are old, but it doesn’t seem from their body language and gesture, they are still young from the heart. Lovely’.
Looking at them one hopes to find a partner to be able to do these things with; may be we should tell that to Sima aunty from Mumbai, when we inform her of the kind of rishtas we want (Indian Matchmaking reference).
Hope that we do not have to ‘compromise’ a lot.
